Spartans hear from former WWE wrestler, Marc Mero
When Roger Bacon High School built the Fine Arts Center, one of the objectives was to start a “speaker series” to bring in various speakers on a wide range of topics of interest to our school community. On Wednesday, September 19th, Roger Bacon hosted Marc Mero, inspirational speaker and former WWE Wrestling Champion, as our first speaker for all all-school assembly. Roger Bacon was very excited to host Mr. Mero. He has presented at more than 2,000 schools throughout the country, empowering students to make positive choices.In his 60-minute production, Marc captivated students in an engaging and entertaining manner as he shared his personal story of tragedy and triumph and where his positive and negative choices took him. Students were inspired to treat themselves and others with respect, dream big, achieve goals, and cherish relationships. Issues such as bullying, peer pressure, substance abuse and suicide prevention were presented in a way that touched our students at a heart level. Marc’s compelling message evoked personal reflection, laughter and tears, and also instilled hope in the Spartan Army.
